Tomb Raider Contest: Real Life Lara Croft Part. 4 by trentjones Tomb Raider Contest: Real Life Lara Croft Part. 4 by trentjones
This photo shoot was taken during a snow storm in the North East. We received 18 inches of snow but our persistence reflects our results. The shoot took nearly a month of preparation to find the right model, make up artist and clothing/equipment. This is my Fourth submission for the Tomb Raider contest. I hope everyone likes all of the hard work we put into this photo shoot.

It bugs me to see all those commenting on the semi-finalist journal criticizing this. I think it's fantastic: the only one that really stood out from all the rest :) I'm rooting for you!

What is there to complain about? All I can see is a great photo of an amazing cosplay.

Mainly down to the fact that it's a photo, and it's a photo of cosplay: some people have called it lazy and said it's only in the semis to satisfy the cosplayer community and such.

How is it lazy? Maybe people don't realize the time and effort that goes into making such a detailed costume?

Because of the time it can take to draw or paint a picture. I'm not saying it's lazy and such myself; I think it's fantastic. This is what I've read on the semis journal entry.

I think it can take just as much time to make a detailed costume, too.

Plus the cost is a lot higher, since you need to purchase all the materials... whereas digital art is just a tablet and a computer :P

But yes, either way, it is amazing <3 I think everything on there is amazing (except that one where they copied the exact face of the official art...)

Ah, but digital art can take just as long. That, and traditional even longer most times.

I don't really care if they did copy or not; they're all fantastic, though seem to be kinda biased in favour of more popular deviants.

No entiendo como se puede tener tan poco respeto por el trabajo ajeno. Además un gran trabajo como es este caso.
Tu opinión es tan respetable como la de cualquiera. Pero una cosa es decir que algo no te gusta y otra muy diferente es dejar un comentario despectivo que hace sentir verguenza ajena.

Tiene mucho más merito por el mero hecho de ser un cosplay. Por lo menos lo considero mucho más original que los demás participantes.

This is by far my favorite entry for the contest, it really shows us that Lara is a human with feelings; she's not some immortal creature, like a lot of the other entries gives the feeling of.

We bought it from Wal-Mart, I'm pretty sure it's not a name brand.
